This book provides an organized framework on the phenomenon of biological invasions. It focuses on the research experience in South American countries, with a strong emphasis on Chile. The text is divided into three parts: the first part comprises seven self-contained chapters, providing a conceptual and bibliographic foundation in the field of invasion ecology. The second part reviews the ecology of five exotic species, which in the light of the available information have been useful models for case studies. Lastly, the third part presents six chapters that address areas and issues in which exotic species play an important role.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Wasserzeichen-DRM wird hier ein "weicher" Kopierschutz verwendet. Daher ist technisch zwar alles möglich - sogar eine unzulässige Weitergabe. Aber an sichtbaren und unsichtbaren Stellen wird der Käufer des E-Books als Wasserzeichen hinterlegt, sodass im Falle eines Missbrauchs die Spur zurückverfolgt werden kann.
